David Hanson MP, Labour’s shadow immigration minister, talked to local people about issues and concerns over immigration this week whilst on a visit to Loughborough.
Visiting the constituency at the invite of Labour’s PPC, Matthew O’Callaghan, David came to the area to discuss people's concerns about immigration and what Labour will do to address them.
He met with local people at Shepshed Watermill before heading out on a campaign session with Matthew.
Speaking after the visit, David said: “These visits are really important, and I am keen to get around the country and listen to what people are saying on immigration.
“During my visit to Loughborough people talked about their concerns over employment and job security. They also talked about benefits too and how we need to ensure we continue to attract those skilled workers and international students that the country needs, but control other forms of immigration.
"The Tories plan is failing. David Cameron has broken his own immigration pledge and is taking no action to stop local workers’ conditions and wages being undercut.
“Labour got things wrong in the past on immigration, so Ed Miliband has set out a new approach – controlling immigration with fair rules and controlling its impact on local communities.”
Matthew O’Callaghan added: “I was delighted that David was able to come along and listen to the views of people here in Loughborough. We know that immigration is important for Loughborough and Britain, but it is essential that we have in place stronger controls so the system is fair.”
